Boerner Horvath, other state legislators dine together despite COVID-19 surge By Staff
REGION — Just hours after state legislators were sworn-in on Monday at the Golden 1 Center, five California state Assembly members dined together outside at a Sacramento restaurant, The Sacramento Bee reported on Tuesday. Despite surging COVID-19 cases and stayat-home orders for much of the state’s population, Tasha Boerner Horvath (D-Encinitas), Adrin Nazarian ASSEMBLYWOMAN Tasha Boerner Horvath has come under (D-West Toluca Lake), Chad fire for dining outside with several other state legislators on Mayes (I-Rancho Mirage), Monday evening in Sacramento.

County) and Chris Ward (D-San Diego) dined together on an outdoor patio at Sacramento’s Maydoon restaurant. Boerner Horvath represents California’s 76th Assembly District, which largely encompasses coastal North County, including Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas and Vista. Elected officials across the state, including Gov. Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor London Breed, have faced public criticism in recent weeks for
violating state COVID-19 guidelines (namely avoiding multi-household gatherings) and contradicting their own calls for residents to stay home and refrain from public outings during the holiday season. Specifically, Democrats' Newsom and Breed were both pilloried after dining at Napa Valley’s French Laundry restaurant on separate occasions. When a Sacramento Bee reporter approached the group and asked about their decision to dine together, Nazarian reportedly
said, “Can we not have dinner?” According to the Sac Bee, Boerner Horvath pulled up her scarf from around her neck to cover her face and left the table. In a phone call, her chief of staff Rob Charles told the newspaper the legislators were following Sacramento County’s COVID-19 requirements. “They were dining outside, they were following the protocols, everyone tested negative for COVID-19,” TURN TO LAWMAKERS ON A7

Auditor recommends more state authority over housing By Dan Brendel
REGION — In a recent report, California’s state auditor recommends new legislation to strengthen state oversight of municipalities’ land use and other policies relating to affordable housing, highlighting Encinitas specifically. The audit also recommends legislation to force housing agencies, which implement state housing law and subsidies, to coordinate their activities and resources less wastefully. The governor appoints the auditor, an independent office, from nominees the legislature’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee submits for a four-year term. As it did unanimously in this case, the joint committee can instruct the auditor to review how effectively state agencies perform. “State law requires jurisdictions to adopt local housing plans [as part of their General Plans] that include sites that accommodate needed units and actions to address barriers to development,” according to the auditor’s report. But “state law is not strong enough to ensure that local jurisdictions actually mitigate these barriers — even on the sites they identify for affordable housing.” As The Coast News previously reported, North County cities have in recent years issued far fewer building permits than their housing plans outline. Similarly, the audit finds jurisdictions statewide have only permitted 11% of their planned-for lower-income units, as of June 2019. The report alleges Encinitas stymied a proposed apartment complex by requiring developer Randy Goodson to furnish “extensive additional information,” including a traffic study, in a way “inconsistent with the streamlined review process state law requires.” The project, subsequently withdrawn, would’ve gone on a site the city rezoned “specifically to accommodate” affordable housing, according to a February letter from the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development, or HCD. Encinitas City Council members didn’t comment. But city staffer Lillian Doherty said: “The city must comply with state law,” but “also ensure that all housing projects are consistent with our General Plan policies” regarding “environmental responsibility, traffic and public safety.” The audit recommends the legislature establish “a timely enforcement mechanism,” such as an appeals process for developers “when local jurisdictions fail to approve eligible affordable housing projects.” SB 744 would’ve established a five-member “Housing Accountability Committee” for this purpose, but it died in committee in 2004, partly due to concerns about constitutionality. “Only courts have the

Graphics from the State Auditor’s report
authority to review whether a legislative body has complied with the law,” according to an assembly committee analysis at the time. “The Housing Accountability Committee would be an example of the executive branch exercising judicial power.” The auditor also recommends the legislature limit municipalities’ discretionary review of projects on sites identified in their housing plans and increase minimum residential density requirements for affordable housing. “These are the most significant barriers we identified where clear gaps in state law exist,” the audit says. In addition to turning the screws on municipalities, the auditor admonishes the state government to put its own house in order. The state’s various
“housing agencies’ misaligned and inconsistent program requirements … can slow development and increase project costs” for affordable housing projects, which “are often more difficult to make financially feasible in the first place.” Additionally, “the state does not have a clear plan describing how or where its billions of dollars for housing will have the most impact. … The absence of a comprehensive and coordinated plan allowed the mismanagement and ultimate waste of $2.7 billion in [tax-exempt] bond resources to occur with little scrutiny.” “The state lacks a unified data system across state housing agencies that tracks applications, type and amount of funding awarded, number of units created, and project loca-
tion for all housing [subsidy] awards.” The auditor recommends the legislature require housing agencies to standardize eligibility requirements and combine processes for developers to obtain state subsidies; consolidate redundant agencies; create a master list of, and strategic plan for, employing all the state’s financial resources for affordable housing; and articulate a “housing data strategy” to “measure the distribution and impact of state-awarded funds,” among other things. “HCD appreciates the audit’s suggestions around additional data and scope and we enthusiastically look forward to embarking on that effort,” an HCD spokeswoman said. The Coast News asked four of North County’s state legislators to comment.
They were mostly dubious about recommendations to enhance state authority over local land use control. Senator Pat Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) said: “Over the past several years, the legislature has sought to limit the ability of local governments to regulate housing development. I recognize we need more affordable housing, but I am skeptical of state efforts to limit local control even further.” The audit is “vague on precisely how to eliminate barriers without also gutting local control.” Senator Brian Jones (R-Santee) said: “The [auditor’s primary] recommendations seem, in general, worthy of consideration, but clearly some details would need to be worked out with a consensus of stakeholders being the desired goal.” Assemblywoman Tasha Boerner-Horvath (D-Encinitas) provided a detailed written statement, available online, noting that “economic and regulatory realities at the local level make one-sizefits-all housing policies ineffective. No amount of market-rate housing will be affordable regardless of density. Only subsidized housing will be affordable, which means inclusionary housing, tax credits and state matching grants for local gap funding…” Boerner Horvath said she supports some of the auditor’s recommendations, but those “for streamlining and eliminating [local] barriers unfortunately missed critical information. We cannot [generate affordable housing] by trading it for reduced safety of our roads or harming our environment.” Assemblywoman Marie Waldron (R-Escondido) said: “California’s burdensome regulations, including CEQA [the California Environmental Quality Act], are major obstacles …. High fees associated with construction add tens of thousands to the costs of new homes. Restricting local control is not an answer, but incentivizing new housing supply is.”
OCEANSIDE — The North County Transit District and San Diego Association of Governments were awarded a $106 million grant to fund a variety of projects throughout the San Diego region, the agencies announced Dec. 8. The funding from the California Transportation Commission will go toward a $202 million program of projects planned for the San Diego portion of the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) rail corridor. Those projects include stabilization of the Del Mar Bluffs, construction of the COASTER Convention Center Platform in the Gaslamp area, Phase 1 of the San Dieguito Bridge near the Del Mar Fairgrounds, and rail line improvements on Camp Pendleton. “We are excited and grateful to the California Transportation Commission for selecting the region’s grant application for funding. The funding will support critical state of good repair and capacity enhancing projects that will increase transit ridership and rail freight movement,” said Tony Kranz, NCTD board chair and Encinitas City Council member. “The funding of these projects will also create local jobs and help boost our economy which has been ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic.” NCTD and SANDAG say the trade corridor enhancement grant will support an expansion of COASTER service to the San Diego Convention Center, extension of service to a new Amtrak maintenance facility in National City, increased freight services along the LOSSAN corridor, minimizing rail crossing delays by extending signaling, improving rail speed and coordination with rail crossing gates, and stabilizing 1.7 miles of coastal bluffs in Del Mar, “This funding is critical to SANDAG’s goal of improving the speed, capacity and safety of rail service along the second-busiest rail corridor in the nation,” said SANDAG Chair and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus. “SANDAG remains fully committed to securing the bluffs in the short-term and identifying a feasible long-term solution for the corridor.”

A grandparent’s plea for transparency at SDUHSD
An open letter to Solana Beach City Council and residents
ear Solana Beach residents, My name is Michael Marks and I’m the CEO of Trilogy Investment Group, founded and still operating in Solana Beach since 1994. For over 25 years, our company has paid millions in property taxes to Solana Beach and have invested heavily in improving both office and retail projects in the community. I’m writing this letter to the Solana Beach City Council and the community, in the hopes of starting a conversation about a critical matter coming before the council early next year. Because most items that challenge the power in Solana Beach are politically charged, it becomes very difficult to make our case in a 15-minute Zoom call before the City Council. This leaves little time for anyone challenging the status quo. Yet, another business is being threatened and may be forced to leave Cedros Avenue! Citizens of Solana Beach can help save this critical company that has become a stabilizing force for many local restaurants, cafes and retail shops. The “100-year storm” impacting retail, coupled with COVID-19, have been devastating to local businesses. Seven closures on Cedros alone, and across the bridge, Crush and Alfonso’s have closed permanently, CPK and Rubio’s filed for bankruptcy and FIT, StretchLab, Row House and Yoga Six are all struggling to survive an industry devastated by the pandemic.
One business, however, is thriving and wishes to expand: it’s a new startup called Flock Freight, a technology company on the 2nd floor of 240 South Cedros Avenue (Lotus). Their mission is to use sophisticated algorithms and artificial intelligence to make sure shipping trucks are filled to capac-
In a recent study, there has been a shift of approximately 26% away from ‘Brick and Mortar’ to online sales.” ity when traveling across town or across the country. The positive implications for the country and the environment are astounding, as we become more and more dependent on receiving packaged goods via the Internet. But the Solana Beach City Council must approve a permit to allow this expansion in what has been traditionally a retail location. Many cities are recognizing and accepting the fact that retail is transitioning and may never be the same. In a recent study, there has been a shift of approximately 26% away from
“Brick & Mortar” to online sales. Most cities would not only be proud to have incubated such an important company but would be doing everything possible to keep them as a productive community asset. Retail districts are embracing the need to add office and residential uses as part of making retail dominant corridors actually work. But others hold on to old policies that seem tone deaf to what is really happening to small businesses. Some leaders in the community argue that office uses fail to deliver the needed retail sales taxes that traditional retailers provide. However, this argument dismisses the fact that Flock Freight may be the most important provider of daily foot traffic for places like Homestead, Lofty Coffee, the Belly Up, Wild Note, Madalyn’s and the local breweries. That is, retail sales come from many sources. Some Cedros retailers reached out saying that Flock Freight is the only support at times when the street is depressingly quiet. I urge the City Council to consider that in this time of division, devastation and massive change, modifying old policy is not only reasonable, but desperately needed. If you agree, I would ask you to write the City Council and express your thoughts. Thank you for your consideration. Michael Marks, Business owner in Solana Beach
ear Mr. Haley: I’ve not walked a mile in your shoes. I can’t say I understand your job. I grant that you have lots of plates spinning in the air. You’re busy—like your students’ parents—many of whom are struggling to save their business or are unemployed. Others juggle work and in-home schooling. Our children are struggling scholastically. They’re starved for social interaction. Daily, my granddaughter is frustrated because she can’t interact with her teachers in a normal fashion. Studies confirm the rising rates of acute adolescent anxiety disorders, increased drug use, and depression. Last week in Lodi, CA, an eleven-year-old boy fatally shot himself during a Zoom class. What’s next? Mr. Haley, your academic credentials must be exceptional; your experience qualifies you for your post. Still, I must give you a below average grade for lack of transparency about opening campuses, and for the dearth of meaningful communication with the families in our community. In September, a copy of the district’s Safe Reopening Plan was sent to parents. The thirty-seven-page document devotes five pages to the wearing of masks and six pages to distancing—but it contains no hard criteria for reopening. Subsequent announcements also lacked transparency: • 10/01/20: “Plans have already been implemented that have returned groups of students back to campus and will continue to return more students.”
(Which students?) • 12/04/20: “Our schools remain open and will continue to provide targeted support for small priority groups of students to ensure our most vulnerable students can access in-person teaching and learning.” (Schools are open?) I know my granddaughter isn’t a member of a priority group, which puts her squarely in the “not special enough” cohort. But there is a plan to introduce some students on EWMS campus one day per week, beginning in January. If that plan goes well, my granddaughter might be able to visit the campus twenty-seven days before the end of the school year. She’s underwhelmed. You have the authority to reopen during a period of Red Tier status. Since August we’ve had many weeks during which this could have been done. Is it too much to ask that you establish clear and measurable metrics for reopening? Is it reasonable for parents to be informed as to why you haven’t opened during past Red Tier periods? Do teachers’ unions
stand in the way? Don’t misinterpret my remarks: We love and support our teachers. We love them so much that our district pays the highest salaries in the county. Within walking distance from EWMS there are four private schools teaching on-campus. These have reported no COVID-19 cases. And when Costco, Wal-Mart and Target operate safely in the current pandemic, I believe our schools should be open as well. I don’t speak for all parents. Some may prefer to continue distance learning. But in my view, the reopening of schools is top priority. As a resident of Solana Beach since 1953; as a former student of Earl Warren Junior High School and San Dieguito High School; as the grandparent of a seventh grader, and as a taxpayer, I call on you to present clear goals for opening schools as soon as possible—then get it done. Proceed as if our children’s lives depend on it. LaMar Going Solana Beach

one year, in accordance with council policy. The new council will hit the ground running, discussing affordable housing policy at a Dec. 14 Housing Element “workshop.” The Housing Element comprises part of the city’s General Plan and must be updated with the state government’s blessing by April. Disagreements about the Housing Element featured prominently during a heated election season. The addition of Martinez and Quirk could shift the council’s majority stance on past points of contention, namely, whether and where to allow increased residential density. “In this election, one of the things I heard over and over was the wish for a new dynamic, new blood on council,” Gaasterland said in her introductory remarks. “We have a fresh start. We have an opportunity to really work together as a team, which does not mean that we should be agreeing on everything. I hope as your mayor to encourage all of our council members, as we discuss, to listen to all sides. That means really paying attention to the people who come to us with public comments. I’m hoping to set a new tone.” “We have a great team here, we each have something to offer. I'm excited to work with all of you and look forward to it,” Worden said. “It was a tough election, but you all did really spectacularly well.” “I want to thank the citizens who voted for me, it’s a huge responsibility,” Martinez said. “You’ve elected me to be your voice and I take that very seriously. I look forward to working with all of my fellow council members. I look forward to representing every citizen in town, whether they voted for me or not.” Quirk said: “I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. I realize that I'm also serving the entire community, and that is my intention. I'm very excited to get to work with all of you and everyone in town.” “It was a very tough, disturbing election, as many of the people that would normally support me did not support me this time,” Druker said. “I want to make sure that they understand that I'm not here to get revenge … but to treat everybody fairly.” “It’s extremely important that we be seen as a check and balance, whether we are here in our own chamber or … as regional representatives,” Druker said. “We are not a courtroom. We're not a classroom. We are a public forum. We cannot expect people to come in front of us to treat us with civility. So, as Harry Truman said, ‘If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.’” City officials and several public speakers from the community bid farewell to two outgoing councilmembers, Sheryl Parks and Ellie Haviland.

Marijuana dispensary aims to help veterans By Steve Puterski
OCEANSIDE — As the city has joined the ranks of legalizing medicinal cannabis, one business is using the medicinal properties to help veterans. MedLeaf in Oceanside opened in July near State Route 76, a delivery-only service and the only dispensary in the city to date. Those behind the business are targeting veterans to help cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Justin Baker, an Oceanside native who now resides in Georgia, along with his sister and brotherin-law, Karen and George Hannawi of Oceanside, put together a plan about a year ago. Baker is a former Army intelligence officer who suffered from PTSD after losing several team members deployed on combat missions. Once he left the military, Baker contracted with the NSA and Army, but now works in the private sector. However, those issues remained, and he said his daily medication consisted of 12 different pills per day. Growing frustrated with the lack of effectiveness, Baker said he tried CBD and it changed his life. Now, he aims to do the same with other veterans.
“I don’t have any direct experience with combat, but I did have issues when I was at Ft. Hood where I experience my first loss … when of our team members was hit by an IED,” he explained. “In supporting MedLeaf and trying to talk to veterans in the area … I’ve seen what cannabis has done for them has made me an advocate.” Baker said the medication he was previously prescribed just kept growing and one friend, a former Army sniper, was up to nearly two dozen medications per day. “I continue to use CBD every day and that helps me,” he added. “That Army sniper, for example, his daily use of cannabis has pulled him off all his medications.” Karen Hawanni said she noticed the changes with her brother and felt helpless. But the three put together a plan to take advantage of the medicinal properties with cannabis. Last year Oceanside allowed for medicinal operations, so Baker and the Hawannis acted quickly to secure their state and city licenses. Their business currently cannot be a typical retail store, so they have a fleet of unmarked vehicles to delivery product to their customers. Using their connec-

CARSLBAD — A 29-year-old male from Encinitas was killed Dec. 4 after colliding with a building at Faraday Avenue and Palmer Way. On arrival, Carlsbad police officers found the rider of a green Kawasaki motorcycle and determined no other vehicles were involved. Officers found the victim to be unconscious however he later died at the scene The preliminary investigation by the Police Department suggests that the motorcycle rider was traveling westbound on Faraday Avenue at an unknown rate of speed when he lost control and ran into a building. Investigators do not believe any other motorists were involved. The preliminary investigation shows that alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the investigation is still underway. Faraday Avenue to Orion way was partially closed for an extended period of time as officers investigated the cause of the collision, but is now open.

Coronavirus Supervisors expand business relief; state reopens playgrounds DOD selects two local sites for COVID-19 vaccine distribution
By City News Service
REGION — The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted unanimously to make San Diego County’s $20 million Small Business Stimulus Grant program available to all businesses affected by COVID-19 safety restrictions. Supervisors voted to expand the small business relief program via teleconference after hearing an update on the county’s efforts to combat the spread of the virus as well as information about future vaccine distribution. They also heard from numerous businesses owners angry over the newest state restrictions mandated by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The restrictions, which went into effect at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, were triggered when intensive-care unit bed availability remained below 15% after Saturday’s daily update, according to the California Department of Public Health. New infections and hospitalizations from the coronavirus have surged in San Diego County, which reported its third-highest daily total of COVID-19 cases on Monday with 1,998. It was the seventh consecutive day with more than 1,000 new cases and the 15th time in the last 18 days. A record 2,287 infections were reported Friday. The cases reported Monday bring the county’s cumulative total to 94,169. No new deaths were reported Monday with the total remaining at 1,062. The county has received nearly $390 million in federal CARES Act funding to help residents and businesses since the pandemic started earlier this year. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, who proposed expanding the business aid, said he understands the impact a regional stay-athome order has on business owners, and “expanding this economic stimulus program will provide bridge

funding to support them and their workers while the restrictions to slow the spread are in place.’’ Fletcher, who also serves as co-chair of the county’s COVID-19 subcommittee, added that he understands people are frustrated by restrictions, but “when we go from 200 to 2,000 cases a day, we have to change what we’re doing.’’ Dr. Wilma Wooten, county public officer, told the board that the state of California is anticipating 327,000 doses of a COVID vaccine in mid-December, with San Diego County expected to receive 28,275 doses in the state’s first round of distribution. “I’m encouraged that our way forward will be seen with vaccinations to (create) herd immunity,’’ she said. As she has at other county meetings, Wooten again urged residents to follow guidelines, including washing hands and maintain social distancing. “We can flatten the curve again,’’ she said. “We can come out of this in a way that saves lives.’’ Many residents who called in during the update’s public comment period voiced their frustrations over how the restrictions are harming them, their families and
businesses. Along with business closures, the restrictions also apply to certain outdoor facilities, including playgrounds. Paula Steger, co-owner of Artistic Laser Productions, said while it’s important for everybody to wear a mask and wash their hands, it’s also “time to go about your daily lives.’’ She said her business lost $60,000 worth of contracts because of restrictions. “I was 7 when the Hong Kong flu hit,’’ Steger said. “The world didn’t shut down then, and we got through it. I’m done. I’m going to work wherever I can in a COVID-safe manner.’’ Dr. Holly Yang, president of the San Diego County Medical Society, reminded residents that the fastest way to reopen the economy is to get the virus under control. “We are at a critical moment — the majority of the county is doing the best it can to reduce spread of the virus,’’ Yang said. SD County playgrounds can reopen after state reverses course
REGION — Playgrounds in San Diego County can reopen to the public today, despite initially being closed under COVID-19 restrictions, after state health officials reversed course. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, led a group of a dozen legislators who sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom last week urging him to remove playgrounds from the stayat-home order. They claimed opening playgrounds “is necessary for the mental and physical health of children to have opportunities to expend their physical energy and play.” They also noted that
in some low-income neighborhoods, “families may have little to no outdoor space of their own available.” Newsom and the California Department of Public Health revised statewide public health guidelines on Wednesday to allow for public playgrounds to remain open. “Every parent knows how important playgrounds are for our youngest Californians,” Gonzalez said. “A huge thank you to Governor Newsom for hearing our collective concern and rethinking how we can open play structures for our kids.” Playgrounds were closed earlier in the pandemic before being reopened in September. Then, with a spike in case rates and the state’s issuance of a regional stay-athome order, which took effect late Sunday night across all of Southern California, playgrounds closed again. Pressure from parents and legislators have now caused the state to reopen the playgrounds. According to the state’s website, “playgrounds may remain open to facilitate physically distanced personal health and wellness through outdoor exercise. Playgrounds located on schools that remain open for in-person instruction, and not accessible by the general public, may remain open and must follow guidance for schools and school-based programs.” San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond made a motion at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday to defy the state order and not enforce the playground closure. It was rejected 3-2. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said his conversation with state officials
proved productive and gave credit to Gonzales — his wife — for her work. County libraries offer doorside books to keep patrons reading
REGION — With state stay-at-home orders in effect, San Diego County’s 33 libraries have moved to door-side service to help residents practice social distancing and still enjoy library books, magazines, music and movies during the pandemic. Card holders can check out library materials and pick them up at the door. Patrons can use the county’s online catalog or call their local branch to find and request what they are looking for. When the items are ready, the library will send a notification via email, phone call or through the mail. Patrons can then check out the materials at the library’s door-side pickup area between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. No appointments are necessary. County Library Director Migell Acosta reminds people to wear masks — library workers will be wearing their masks and practicing social distancing — and bring a library card or valid ID card. Current due dates for San Diego County Library materials have been extended to Feb. 3, 2021. Acosta said library patrons also can still digitally access all the library’s e-books and e-magazines 24 hours a day, seven days a week by downloading the Libby app for e-books, audio books and e-magazines. San Diego County residents can download the Libby app at sdEbooks.org. Residents who do not have a library card can sign up for an e-card at the library’s website.
REGION — The U.S. Department of Defense announced today its phased plan to distribute and administer the COVID-19 vaccine from the Naval Medical Center in San Diego and the Naval Hospital in Camp Pendleton. The DOD is working with the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. As one of the 64 jurisdictions to which the United States government has allocated vaccines, the DOD plans to administer its initial allocation of 43,875 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to populations of uniformed service members — both actives and reserves. That includes members of the National Guard, dependents, retirees, civilian employees and select contract personnel. The department is prioritizing DOD personnel to receive the vaccine based on CDC guidance, first focusing on those providing direct medical care, maintaining essential national security and installation functions, deploying forces, and those beneficiaries at the highest risk for developing severe illness from COVID-19 before other members of the DOD population. Distribution will be conducted in phases. Due to limited availability of initial vaccine doses, the first phase will distribute and administer vaccines at select locations. Initial distribution sites — including the two local sites — were selected by the DOD’s COVID Task Force based on recommendations from the military services and U.S. Coast Guard, to best support several criteria: — Anticipated supply chain requirements, such as cold and bulk storage facilities; — Local population of at least 1,000 priority personnel across the military services; and — Sufficient medical personnel to administer vaccines and actively monitor vaccine recipients. — The distribution of the allocated COVID-19 vaccines will begin once the Federal Drug Administration authorizes the COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use and in accordance with Operation Warp Speed guidance. Other distribution sites in the continental United States include Fort Hood, Texas, Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Carlsbad passes Right to Recall ordinance for hotel workers By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council passed an urgency ordinance to protect select hotel workers during its Dec. 8 meeting. The council voted 4-1, with Matt Hall against, to approve the Right to Recall ordinance, ensuring furloughed or laid-off hotel workers at six properties will be the first ones rehired once hotel operators begin to ramp up operations from the COVID-19 pandemic. Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel, who brought forward the ordinance during a Nov. 17 meeting, said the ordinance is a way to protect vulnerable workers, single women, seniors, people of color adversely impacted by the pandemic and lower-wage employees. She also said it was important for the city to protect the rights of workers, which is why hotel operators must follow a number of guidelines when notifying workers if they have been rehired. “I’m looking forward to what we can achieve by protecting the workers,” Bhat-Patel said. “I’m advocating for folks who serve our community. Know it’s a challenging time for our hotels. I’ve represented the interests of the business community as much as possible. Unemployment levels without recall cause longer unemployment and they usually find lower-paying
UNITE HERE Local 30 held a series of protests earlier this year demanding a fair contract and wages for hotel workers.

jobs.” Several adjustments were made to the final enactment, including increasing the number of hours worked per week — six months prior to the layoff — from two hours to 10 hours per week; and employees have three to five business days after receiving the mailing to accept or decline instead of 10 days. The ordinance, which only applies to hotels with 200 or more guest rooms, begins immediately and runs for 12 months, at which
time the city manager will report back to the council for further action. The council also included a provision to include a union collective bargaining agreement exemption. The language states, “The provisions of this chapter may be waived by the collective bargaining agreement if the waiver is explicitly set forth in the agreement or an amendment in clear and unambiguous terms.” Unite Here Local 30 held a protest rally at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in
February demanding a fair contract and wages for workers. Omni La Costa is one of six hotels covered under the ordinance. “I can’t imagine being a single mom and navigating this pandemic,” said Bhat-Patel, who is expecting her first child in several months. “(I can agree to the) CBA part and remove that (top sentence). In order to tighten that up and incorporate the interests of the mayor and those I represent.” The city will not en-
force the ordinance, instead of leaving it as a civil matter for an employee to file a complaint with the San Diego County Superior Court. A number of speakers came out in support of the measure saying workers need protections, businesses can do what they want and have lawyers, along with it being a “little guy versus big employer” situation. Hall said the ordinance is an overreach from the council and will end up
costing more jobs than it protects. According to Hall, hotel owners are scared the industry has already taken massive financial losses during the current recession, in addition to new state orders limiting the capacity at hotels. The mayor also voiced concerns with potential litigation from hotels, citing an ongoing lawsuit against the City of San Diego for a near-identical policy, and any potential retroactive applications of the ordinance. Lynn Mohrfeld, president of the California Hotel & Lodging Association, said the industry is hurting and 25% of hotels nationwide are delinquent on their loans. Mohrfeld said the ordinance is likely to have an “outsized impact on the survival of local hotels.” Bhat-Patel and Councilwoman Cori Schumacher also discussed stripping legal protections for hotel operators, with Schumacher suggesting that vulnerable employees don’t have the financial means to litigate. However, Councilman Keith Blackburn, who supported the measure, said he’d withdraw his support if protections for hoteliers were struck from the ordinance. “People make frivolous lawsuits frequently … and there are plenty of people willing to back them,” Blackburn said. “It gives me heartburn when it’s a one-way protection.”
Luxury resort, foundation partner for sustainability

Palomar Health sees dramatic surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations San Marcos encourages granny flats By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO – Palomar Health is one of the hundreds of health systems across California that are seeing a spike in hospitalizations due to a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The two hospitals, one in Escondido and one in Poway, are preparing their staff and supplies as numbers continue to rise. San Diego County is under a three-week stayat-home order as of late Sunday night due to a decrease in ICU beds across Southern California. The state order will be lifted after three weeks if the region’s ICU capacity rises to 15% or higher. Palomar Health’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Omar Khawaja said that countywide, hospitalizations were in the 200s, but that number is now up to the 700s range with about 30% of those patients going into the ICU. Dr. Khawaja, who is responsible for Palomar Medical Center in Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway, told The Coast News that at both hospitals, the last spike was about 40 COVID-19 hospitalizations, but now that number is around 70, with about a quarter of those being in the ICU. “We’ve been lucky not to see a huge hit to our ICUs or our ventilators, but we are seeing higher numbers than we’ve ever seen,” Dr. Khawaja said. “We saw a real spike cor-

related to just temperature change, because people are staying indoors and in closer proximity to people. The Thanksgiving holiday will add a layer on top of that [which] we haven’t really seen yet. We might see those effects in the next week or two.” Back in April, Palomar Medical Center in Escondido received a 202-bed FEMA field hospital, which still hasn’t been used. Dr. Khawaja said that it hasn’t been necessary yet, but the health systems have been in constant communi-
cation about how it would be used if needed. Craig Sturak, Communications Officer for the County of San Diego Health & Human Services, told The Coast News that the field hospital stands ready to be activated if the county reaches a point where it is needed. If the time does come, Dr. Khawaja said it will most likely be used for low acuity patients to offload some of the other health systems Another concern that comes with increased hos-

pitalizations is a higher demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). A few months ago, hospitals nationwide faced severe shortages of PPE, but Dr. Khawaja says they are much more prepared this time around. “In March and April, we were worried about running out. Now, we’re just trying to build a stockpile and have plenty of reserve. So, it’s a very different conversation than we were having in March. We’re in a much better place now in terms of PPE,” Dr. Khawaja said. He said that during this time, it’s important for

people to follow guidelines and physical distancing, but warned against social distancing. “We are trying to emphasize physical distancing instead of social distancing… we are seeing that, along with higher COVID numbers is also more isolation, so if you have someone that you know is isolating, do whatever you can – phone calls, Facetime, Zoom – just reach out to them and make sure they know there’s someone who cares for them and is interested in their well-being. It goes a long way,” Dr. Khawaja said.
SAN MARCOS — San Marcos residents interested in learning about the possibility of adding an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) or Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU) to their property will find answers to the most frequently asked questions on the city’s Zoning Information Page. A change in California State law earlier this year has made it easier to add a second house, knwon as an ADU, to a residentially-zoned property. An ADU is an attached or detached residential dwelling unit that provides complete independent living facilities for one or more persons. ADU’s must include permanent provisions for living, sleeping, eating, cooking and sanitation on the same parcel as a single-family or multifamily dwelling. A JADU is 500-square-feet or less and is contained entirely within an existing or proposed single-family residence. It must include a separate entrance from the single-family residence. San Marcos residents who are considering adding an ADU or JADU to their property are encouraged to review all of the detailed information outlined here.

Pure Water project may get $6M for construction By Samantha Nelson

installation of three pipelines built down North River Road, Douglas Drive and Pala Road. Three injection wells
and three monitoring wells will also be constructed for the project. Drilling of two injection wells started in November, and additional
post-drilling work including testing and installation of well infrastructure will take place through next summer.
“Pure Water Oceanside will be injecting advanced treated water into the groundwater aquifer, which will increase our local water supply and increase the quality and quantity of the water in that aquifer,” said Principal Water Engineer Lindsay Leahy. “This keeps our aquifer healthy and helps to prevent any subsidence (the gradual caving in or sinking of an area of land) and over-drafting (when groundwater use exceeds the amount of recharge into an aquifer).” The city put out bids for the drilling of the project’s monitoring wells, which will be placed downstream from the injection wells to track the water flow. The city received one bid from Yellow Jacket Drilling Services but the bid did not meet WIFIA (Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act) funding requirements, which means the project wouldn’t be eligible for a portion of WIFIA funding. Because of this, the staff recommended council reject the bid at the Dec. 2 meeting. Council unanimously rejected the bid, instead opting for a change order that granted the services to Nor-Cal Pump & Well Drilling, which is already contracted by the city to drill the project’s injection wells. With the additional services, the revised contract amount is now $4,428,068. Sanchez said subsidence is a big concern. “This is a very critical project,” Sanchez said. “We need to ensure we’re putting the right amount of water back in, and that we’re not going to have any subsidence issues. This aquifer is very critical to Oceanside, to our region.”

OCEANSIDE — The U.S. Secretary of the Interior is planning to recommend $6 million in federal dollars for the construction of the Pure Water Oceanside project. Interior Secretary David. L. Bernhardt is planning to recommend the project for the grant award, which will come from the Bureau of Reclamation’s WaterSMART: Title XVI WIIN Water Reclamation and Reuse Projects funding opportunity. The Bureau of Reclamation provides grants to water districts and communities like Oceanside trying to reclaim and reuse wastewater and compromised ground and surface water in the West. Pure Water Oceanside will purify recycled water to create a local source of potable drinking water. Currently, the city imports about 85% of its water from hundreds of miles away at the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and the Colorado River. According to Water Utilities Director Cari Dale, the project is “drought-proof and environmentally sound.” Pure Water Oceanside project will provide more than 32% of the city’s water supply, equating to 3 to 5 million gallons of water per day. The project will be the first operating advanced water purification facility in San Diego County. “We’re basically pioneers with our Pure Water Oceanside project,” said Councilmember Esther Sanchez at the Dec. 2 City Council meeting. Construction of the project’s facility is already underway at the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility on North River Road. Construction includes the

Former councilwoman writes guide to grassroots activism Court seeks By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Can a self-published book on local politics hold the key to relieving political tensions in Southern California? Former Encinitas City Councilwoman Dr. Lisa Shaffer believes so. Shaffer’s book, “Potholes, Parks, and Politics: A guide to getting things done locally (without having to run for office yourself),” hands over the local government playbook to all citizens, of all political beliefs, in towns anywhere across America. Following a contentious election season with historic voter turnout both nationally and locally, Shaffer seeks to offer impassioned voters a roadmap to enacting change in their own backyard, sharing her own experiences as a citizen, candidate and elected official. A one-term councilmember, Shaffer holds a doctorate in public policy, working in management, negotiations, marketing and policy analysis for over 40 years prior to her council appointment in 2012. Shaffer was inspired to run for a council seat due to the lack of diverse opinions and her perception that every resident’s voice wasn’t properly represented or respected. “After four years on the council, I spent a lot of time thinking about who was effective and what strategies

caused us, as decision makers, to listen,” Shaffer said. “Some people we really listened to and others were just forgotten. I’ve tried to understand why that was and the key to success.” According to Shaffer, the book is a non-partisan guide to influencing local
policy decisions without the hassle of running for office, providing readers with stepby-step instructions on how to morph a personal grievance into tangible change in one’s community. Written in layman’s terms for easy reading, the book is divided into three
SMUSD gears up for superintendent search By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) will begin searching for a new superintendent soon after the new Governing Board is seated on Dec. 15. The district is currently being led by Interim Superintendent Dr. Kevin Holt, who served as superintendent of SMUSD for 14 years before retiring in June 2017. Dr. Holt took the position in October after former Superintendent Dr. Carmen García abruptly resigned in September following months of conflict with parents and district teachers. “It is a great honor to
be asked to come out of retirement and provide my leadership as the interim superintendent,” Holt said in a statement to The Coast News. Dana Vorsos, executive assistant to the superintendent, told The Coast News that the district will consider qualified candidates from inside and outside of the district. She said the board is working with the Education Support Services Group for the recruitment of a superintendent. Vorsos also said that Dr. Holt will not be considered to take over in a permanent role because he is retired and will not be permanent-
ly coming out of retirement. Once the new board is seated, they will work together with the recruitment firm to determine what qualifications they are searching for in a new superintendent and will then begin their search. It is unclear when the district hopes to have made its decision. SMUSD is currently operating in a hybrid model for elementary students and virtual instruction for middle and high school students. Beginning in January, all students will be offered a hybrid learning option for the remainder of the school year.

sections, including a how-to guide on taking action, basic civics lessons and a “toolbox” section with templates and tools for activists. “This book isn’t just about Encinitas politics,” Shaffer said. “This is applicable for any local government and a lot of it is common sense.” Shaffer walks readers through the step-by-step process of working through each issue, defining the problem, identifying the players and rules, working with the city, putting concepts into action, building the case and going public. In choosing to play out three scenarios, all of which are currently relevant to Encinitas — housing development, infrastructure improvements, and environmental conservation — Shaffer intended to create a timely and useful tool for local activists. “The whole world works better when people understand how government works and that it ought to be responsive to what the citizens want, but if citizens can’t express themselves in a constructive way, it doesn’t work well,” Shaffer said. “So, one of the big messages in here is civility, clarity, and communication.” According to Shaffer, civility is key to success. “I hope the anger and nastiness of the campaign will dissipate. I think everybody was made conscious of how bad it feels when
people are that angry and don’t want to go back there again,” Shaffer said. Like many, Shaffer felt the intensity of Encinitas’ divisive 2020 election season, filled with online and in-person harassment, and sees her book as an antidote to the political toxicity. “If residents feel like they’ve been heard — and they will be heard better if they are more effective, thoughtful, and organized — the hostility and division can be reduced,” Shaffer said. Written with the assistance of former Encinitas Mayor Teresa Arballo Barth with illustrations by Sharon Belknap, the book is available for purchase online and can be either shipped or delivered locally by Shaffer herself.

Ex-Grizzlies making their Mission Hills coach proud
t’s every coach’s dream, regardless of the sport or the players’ skill level. It’s the potential payday down the road that is gold, and that’s certainly true of Mission Hills High’s Chris Hauser. He cashes a personal dividend whenever landing on the Big Ten Network at his San Marcos home. On a weekly basis, the veteran coach is thrilled to watch his former Grizzlies perform. “Absolutely,” Hauser said. “When you get to work with young people, you en-
sports talk jay paris joy that time with them. Then to see their journey afterward on the field, or whatever they may get into, it makes you so proud.” Hauser’s pride was in overdrive last week with Ohio State’s Chris Olave, a junior wide receiver, and Indiana’s Jack Tuttle, a
sophomore quarterback, shining on the college game’s biggest stages. Both played for Hauser and led the Grizzlies to the 2017 CIF San Diego Section Open Division title game. While they were prep standouts, there’s no guarantee that designation translates to the next level. Then again, with these players’ athletic prowess and willingness to embrace the grind, Hauser’s not surprised they’ve flourished. “Chris’ work ethic is off the charts,” Hauser said. “He’s gifted, no ques-
tion, but he always put the work in.” Tu t t l e ? He was no turtle hiding in his shell when preparing for greatness and sharing his OLAVE love for the student life. Now he’s the big man at Indiana, where everyone knows his name in Kilroy’s, a campus watering hole. Hauser saw Tuttle’s popularity and graciousness up

close. “Jac k was like ‘Mr. High School’ and in a great way,” Hauser said. “He knew what he meant to the school and he TUTTLE treated every single person the same. “His kindness was probably one of his top qualities. A shy freshman would tell him he had a great game and he would thank him, engage with him and ricochet the conversation away from himself.” No. 8-ranked Indiana’s bounce-back, like Tuttle’s, is admirable. Before finding Hoosier hospitality — his father, Jay, was a walk-on punter for Indiana — Tuttle absorbed disappointment. He chose Utah after Mission Hills, and while it had a great lake, it wasn’t a great fit for Tuttle. “His journey was different from Chris’ and it speaks volume about kids coming out of high school that sometimes it doesn’t happen right away,” Hauser said. “We have a lot of pretty good football players in San Diego County. But there are so many other good football players that in college, every practice, every game, is like going against high school allstars. “Sometimes it can be humbling for kids to be able to understand that success and failure both take time. You don’t go straight to the top of the depth chart in college. You are going to
have to earn it.” Tuttle’s powerful right arm secured his spot in Hoosier lore on Dec. 5 against Wisconsin. Filling in for the injured Michael Penix, Tuttle heaved two touchdowns in his first collegiate start to give Indiana its sixth Big Ten win in a season for only the third time since 1967. “They had a spot-on game plan for him, and when I was watching this thing unfold, he was in a zone,” Hauser said. Olave’s deal is reaching the end zone. His 12 scoring catches last year were the fourth-most in a season in school history, and he continues to carry a bull’s-eye for Buckeye quarterbacks. The speedy Olave has five touchdowns and is averaging nearly 17 yards on 36 receptions for No. 3 Ohio State. The catch for Hauser, when the pair played for him, was for him not to hinder a good thing. “I stayed out of their way,” he said. “They always had the green light to do something if the coverage gave it to them.” Just don’t take away Hauser’s weekends as he tracks ex-Grizzles. Others include Fred Warner, a solid linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, and his younger brother, Troy, a senior defensive back at BYU. The mission for any coach is for his charges to excel. Hauser’s appreciative that he’s still receiving payback through his former players. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on jparis_sports.

Local restaurant owners pledge resistance to latest mandate By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — After San Diego County announced a second stay-athome health order on Dec. 6, some business owners have responded with pledges of resistance. Local establishments have even posted declarations on social media, claiming the order violates their Constitutional rights, receiving support from individuals across the country. In Escondido, the business “Koffie,” a small coffee shop publicly declared, “[we] will not be closing… Let’s stick together, have courage, and stand with us.” Roxy Encinitas restaurant posted a sign on Dec. 7 at its host stand reading, “Roxy is proudly remaining open for business as part of a constitutionally protected peaceful protest/ assembly against unconstitutional illegal government orders.” Roxy owner Paula Vrakas spoke to the Coast News about the restaurant’s struggle to remain open following the county’s recent closures. “We’re doing everything safely. We’re serving outside and take out,” Vrakas said. “Everyone’s jobs are essential. We are trying our hardest to maintain the health and well-being of our staff through the holiday season.” Vrakas fears business-

es will permanently close before next year if they are not permitted to remain open. Since many North County cities do not have the means to monitor local businesses, many wonder how the county’s Safe Reopening Compliance Team, comprised of 21 code enforcement officers and eight sheriff’s deputies, will enforce the latest stay-
at-home order. Currently, there are more than 86,000 businesses in San Diego County. According to the County’s Health & Human Services Agency, the Compliance Team was established in August to enforce mandated public health orders. The task force will rely upon assistance from local law enforcement and the general public, who

primary mission is to promote environmental education among young people, encouraging trash and recycling solutions at beaches, schools, surf events as well as reusable water bottle usage. According to the Foundation, “what started out in the early days as the introduction of gardening programs at local schools — encouraging children to connect with the land they live on and the food they eat — has evolved into a
water filling station program across a growing network of schools and public places that helps deliver clean, filtered water while encouraging reusables over single-use plastic water bottles.” The Foundation partnered with the Alila Marea in 2020, working together to influence the resort’s own sustainability efforts. “Encinitas has been home to my family and I for many years now and we are excited to welcome Alila Marea Beach Resort to the community,” Rob Machado said. “It’s an honor to
have their support for our Rob Machado Foundation and we look forward to our growing relationship that will benefit both locals and visitors.” The two organizations intend to continue their partnership beyond this year’s holiday season, producing additional wellness experiences and musical events for guests and the local community at the resort.

may report businesses or organizations in violation of established orders via hotline (858) 694-2900, or email at SafeReopeningComplianceTeam@sdcounty.ca.gov. The Compliance Team hosts weekly phone conversations with individual cities, providing the names of businesses issued ceaseand-desist letters, which are also available online. Mayor Catherine Blakespear confirmed that the City of Encinitas, just like every other city, does not have power to enforce the orders. “Some cities choose to not publicly support the county’s health orders for political purposes,” Blakespear said. “But ultimately the county’s [Compliance Team] enforces the county order, otherwise there would be wildly varying levels of enforcement. “Everybody’s just trying to do the best they can to work within the realities that we’ve been given.” According to Pat Piatt, a city of Encinitas spokesperson, businesses in violation of the order will first be verbally asked to comply by either local law enforcement or a member of the Compliance Team. If a business continues to defy regulations, the District Attorney and Compliance Team will issue a Cease and Desist order. If a cease-and-desist letter is issued and violated, the business will be shut down by the county. Local law enforcement will assist the Compliance Team, however in a limited manner. According to Capt. Herbert Taft of the Sheriff Department’s North Coastal Station, deputies have two options if local law enforcement agencies, not the county’s Compliance Team, receives a complaint or comes upon a business disobeying the public health order. Deputies can either
ROXY ENCINITAS posted a sign in front of the restaurant pledging to remain open. Photo by Caitlin Steinberg
verbally inform the establishment they are in violation of the health order or immediately hand the case off to the Compliance Team. “It is easier for the Compliance Team to handle enforcement rather than our own deputies,” Taft said. “Unlike our station, they have court appointed deputies who are able to serve Cease and Desist orders, while we legally can not.” And while the Compliance Team of 35 individuals may appear small relative to the size of the county, it has the legal power to work quickly, Taft said. “The Team has all the right people working together… law enforcement, county code officers, and the District Attorney… that’s vertical prosecution,” Taft said. It is unknown how effective and strict the Compliance Team would be in enforcing the stay-at-home order through the holidays and even Taft could not predict the Team’s ultimate success nor businesses’ willingness to comply. As of Tuesday, eight businesses in Encinitas have been served cease and desist orders.
Blakespear expressed her own worry and condolences for businesses facing closures. “I feel terrible because I think the theme that comes through to me is desperation,” Blakespear said. “People just want to stay in business and provide for their families, hire their employees and they feel desperate. This is a tremendously difficult situation because we both want to protect public health and also save small businesses.” According to Blakespear the Encinitas City Council will announce another $75,000 in CARES ACT funding to Encinitas businesses on Wednesday, Dec 10. Blakespear stressed the importance of shopping small, sharing her own intentions of purchasing books from Encinitas shop Artifact Books and ordering take out from local restaurants. “I think many recognize there’s a light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine,” Blakespear said. “But the reality of what exists now is that for three more weeks, businesses will be severely impacted, especially restaurants.”

Convenient local COVID-19 testing produces rapid same-day results Carlyle twinkles bright, welcomes first residents CARLSBAD - Do you have plans to travel and need to know if you have COVID-19 fast? A testing site in Carlsbad will get you the results you need fast without ever making you step out of your car. Covid Clinic is a fully certified and compliant COVID-19 testing site that offers expedited and rapid testing for travel at several of its California locations including its Carlsbad site. Patients simply drive up to the testing site and are navigated through the clinic’s course to be tested. There are five different tests to choose from: a Standard Molecular NAAT COVID-19 test, a Rapid Molecular NAAT test, a rapid antigen test, an antibody test and the Rapid RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Many travel restrictions require a RT-PCR, molecular or NAAT test before arriving to the destination, and the RT-PCR satisfies most travel requirements. Patients receive a nasal swab at the clinic site and receive their results generally within two hours. For the Standard Molecular NAAT COVID-19 test, results are generally reported within two to five days. If patients opt for the rapid
version, they can receive their results in as little as 20 minutes. Current demand for testing may extend that time. Patients can also receive their results in as little as 20 minutes by taking the Rapid COVID-19 Antigen test. Antigen tests detect proteins from the virus while the previously mentioned molecular tests detect genetic material from the virus. The COVID-19 Antibody test can be used by patients who want to know if they had the virus at some point without knowing it at the time. Results for this test are generally reported within two to five days. The specimens for the COVID-19 test and the antibody test are collected at the Covid Clinic and then sent to LabCorp for processing, while the rapid COVID-19 test is processed at the testing site. All test results are reported to the county health department. Payment is required up front, however doctor referrals are not required and patients are encouraged to submit their receipts for reimbursement from their insurance companies. To book an appointment in Carlsbad, visit https:// covidclinic.org/carlsbad/.
If you do, please scan the code above with your mobile device for a quick survey on second-hand smoke exposure. Complete the survey and have a chance to enter an opportunity drawing, just in time for the holidays.

Oceanside clinical trials offer hope to frustrated patients San Diego residents suffering from a variety of medical challenges, from depression to fibromyalgia, have found hope and healing by participating in local clinical trials. They’re among the first to try groundbreaking new experimental medications being tested at regional labs — and the first to potentially benefit. What are Clinical Trials? Clinical trials are pharmaceutical-funded research efforts carried out at clinical facilities to determine the efficacy and side effects of new, experimental medications such as those in the search for a COVID-19 vaccine. Oceanside’s Excell Research Institute, founded in 2004 by lifelong friends Dr. Sherry Soefje and Dr. Jelena Kunovac, both psychiatrists with over 25 years of research experience, is one such research facility dedicated to improving the lives of patients through safe and effective medication therapies. This woman-owned clinical research facility conducts ongoing trials into a variety of disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder, post-menopausal hot flashes, Alzheimer’s disease, borderline personality disorder, OCD, bi-polar disorder, postpartum depression, migraines, and insomnia. With studies open anywhere from six months to two years, new studies continually beginning, and studies for conditions like depression and schizophrenia ongoing, there are many opportunities to participate.

staff and slower pace also give candidates and participants more face-to-face time with clinicians.” Clinical Trial Risks Successful clinical studies are controlled for a placebo affect which is when the results of a medication are impacted by the expectation that it will be effective. Controlling these studies means that not all participants will receive active medication. Symptoms for placebo group participants could remain the same or worsen. The risk of side effects is also higher for those taking the active medication. For many participants, the possibility of relief from their condition, and the financial and altruistic benefits, are worth the risk. Who’s Eligible? Ideal candidates

GRINDING OR CLENCHING of the teeth is a common reaction to increased levels of stress Courtesy photo
Feeling stressed? You may have accelerated tooth wear It’s no surprise that 2020 has been a stressful year for everyone, but did you know that with more stress comes more wear on your teeth? Grinding or clenching of the teeth is a common reaction to increased levels of stress according to Dr. Mark Galli, an Encinitas dentist. Most of the time it’s happening at night, which means many people aren’t even aware that they’re doing it. “Unless they have symptoms, most people think they don’t grind their teeth,” Dr. Galli said. “But whether you know it or not, most of us do a little bit of clenching and grinding, especially in stressful times like these.” Symptoms of grinding or clenching teeth may include headaches, sore muscles or jaws and cracked or broken teeth. One of the most common signs is less obvious: tooth wear. Like tires on a car, which wear slowly or quickly depending on how you drive, tooth wear can happen at different rates and can be hard to see until it is too late. Most of the time small chips on the front or back teeth can signal a bigger issue. “Like cracks in a windshield, cracks in teeth never get smaller,” Dr. Galli said. And though a patient may not have a cracked tooth yet, it’s wise to address wear or a grinding problem sooner rather than later. “If you wait until you see or feel something is wrong with your tooth, the problem is usually advanced,” Dr. Galli said. “Seeing the dentist regularly to evaluate wear patterns and the function of your teeth should be part of a regular check-up.” If he sees evidence of damage, he will take closeup photos and discuss options to repair the issue and limit future incidences. Treatment could be as simple as a custom made guard to wear at night. “We always recommend getting
a custom made guard that fits the teeth well and has been adjusted to function properly,” Dr. Galli said. Even if an over-thecounter night guard seems to fit well, it cannot be adjusted to protect the joint and muscles in function. Over the counter or online nightguards can actually make the problem worse. Sometimes, if the patient has more wear or chipping that is visible, a rebuild of the teeth and bite is appropriate so they look and function properly. When Dr. Galli rebuilds teeth, he restores the proper bite and function which protects the other teeth, jaw muscles and joints. It also improves how the mouth looks as well. Though some people may think their teeth aren’t very worn today, Dr. Galli’s concern is the future. “They may not have symptoms today, but if the wear is there, what I’m really concerned about is what their mouth will look like 10 years from now,” Dr. Galli said. Other people are hesitant because of their age or they are concerned that it will look artificial. “A properly done rebuild appears age-appropriate and not obvious,” Dr. Galli explained. “It should be subtle, beautiful, comfortable and feel very natural.” It is rarely “too late” for you to have your teeth restored, and many of his rebuild patients have been in their 50s, 60s and even 70s. “It gives them a restart on their mouth,” Dr. Galli said. “Twenty or thirty more years of good meals and looking great will definitely improve your quality of life.” Galli said it’s common for patients who complete rebuilds to wish they would have done it 10 years earlier. To schedule an appointment to see if you have tooth wear, call 760-943-1449 or visit h t t p s : / / g a l l i d d s . c o m /.

Escondido schools back to virtual plan By Staff
ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Union School District has temporarily suspended all in-person instruction effective Dec. 8, requiring all students to continue virtual-only instruction at home. During the next several weeks, students will follow the district's virtual hybrid model schedule, according to a district statement. In-person classes are expected to resume on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021. The suspension of in-person instruction is not related to the state’s new three-week Stay Home Order. “This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, as well as out of a commitment to providing a rigorous educational program for our students. We know this decision directly impacts our families, we know that it’s far from ideal, but this was the right decision at this time,” said Luis Rankins-Ibarra, EUSD superintendent. “The operational efficiency of our schools is essential to the safety and health of our students and staff, which has been and will continue to be my top priority.” Once a positive case is confirmed, extensive conTURN TO SCHOOLS ON B6

San Marcos brewery to close after 27 years By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS – San Marcos Brewery & Grill recently announced that they are permanently shutting their doors after a 27-year run in the Old California Restaurant Row shopping center in San Marcos due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The popular North County brewery made the announcement on Nov. 19 with a short post on their Facebook page: “Well, the time has come. With the restrictions of COVID-19 and the purple tier, the Brewery has suspended its operations. We’ve had a good 27-year run and now it’s time to call it... done. Thank you all for the support through the years. We wish you well. Cheers to a better year! 2021.” The post has more than a hundred comments of residents expressing their
sadness and frustration over having to say goodbye to a staple of their community, one which many have grown up with. The brewery, which

businesses become successful if they are having issues.” Other businesses have also permanently closed down their San Marcos locations due to financial difficulties caused by the pandemic including Phil’s BBQ, Slater’s 50/50, Perks Coffee House and more.

Diego County just entered a three-week stay-at-home order as of late Sunday night due to a decrease in ICU beds across Southern California. The order temporarily closes a number of businesses, including on-site dining, even outdoors, at restaurants, breweries and wineries. Hair salons and barbershops, personal care services, museums and zoos, movie theaters, and indoor recreational facilities will also have to close. Elected leaders across North County, including Mayor Jones, have recently been vocal about their frustrations with the new stay-at-home order and some businesses may even refuse to comply with the new order. The state order will be lifted after three weeks if the region’s ICU capacity rises to 15% or higher.
on’t start with me about having no seasons out here. This year, even Southern Californians could tell when it was winter. I had to actually scrape ice off my windshield three times. Harsh. Oh sure, I wasn’t standing in 10 degrees with a wind chill factor while I did it, but still, for these parts, it was a very nippy winter. Even without the ice, I had several clear indications. First, I am already through two-thirds of the cord of firewood we bought in mid-December. Second, I’m afraid to open my gas and electric bill. Third, I am sick to death of every sweater I own. My fourth clear signal actually doubled as one of the first bellwhethers of spring. I didn’t really notice my dogs putting on an even thicker coat of fur to cope with the unusually cold temperatures, until this week. Along with the serene sound of the first mourning doves, the beasts began to shed. Suddenly, all the black wool I have been wearing became mohair. I was wading through sixinch drifts of dog fur. I went through six lint rollers in a week and still couldn’t get out the door unfluffed. On Saturday, I lost it. I flew into a multi-pronged cleaning frenzy. In desperation mode, I bathed both dogs, only to find this released more hair. I spent an extra 15 minutes per dog, just scraping TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B4

Rancho Coastal Humane Society rescues 23 dogs from Mexico By City News Service
ENCINITAS — The Rancho Coastal Humane Society took in 23 puppies, adolescent, and adult dogs from the Mexican state of Sonora last week — the latest in a series of lifesaving transports from Rescue Fenix in Obregon, working hand-in-paw with the humane society and Greater Good Charities. “These dogs were rescued from the streets and taken to the Rescue Fenix shelter,’’ said John Van Zante, RCHS spokesman. “They live in outdoor colony kennels. The puppies and smaller dogs compete for food with every other dog. Many of them would not survive if they were not taken in by Rescue Fenix then transferred out of there.’’ The dogs began their 17 hour ride to Tijuana early Friday morning.

Artist’s elves bring holiday cheer to Vista shops By Steve Puterski
VISTA — Painted elves appear on the windows of businesses in downtown Vista as part of the nonprofit Backfence Society’s latest public art initiative featuring the talents of local artist Karma Reclusado. While the project is her first official commissioned work, Reclusado, 23, has approached it with enthusiasm. Using satin indoor acrylic paint, she transforms local business owners and employees into festive elves on storefront windows. And the program is gaining momentum. Wavelength Brewery features a pair of elves resembling the film characters “Jay and Silent Bob” on its front window. The local brewery has also requested elves dressed up as
members of a Scandinavian metal band. Reclusado also painted several family generations — from grandparents to grandchildren — on the

window of the Children's Paradise Preschool headquarters downtown. “I’ve been enjoying it so far, and I think it’s a really wonderful idea,” Reclusado said. Sarah Spinks, president of the Backfence So-
ciety, said the program is a way to bring spirit and joy to the city amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As an artist, Spinks said Reclusado is a perfect fit. Reclusado’s style is reminiscent of 1950s advertising campaigns with a modern twist — a mix between vintage illustrations, comic books and graphic novels. Once the program gained momentum, the City of Vista requested Reclusado’s paintings for its holiday promotion, “Selfie with an Elfie,” as part of Discover Vista’s holiday decorations. Discover Vista held an online fundraiser earlier this year, which allowed the nonprofit society to purchase decorations such as lights and ribbons for wrapping lighat poles. “It puts people in the mood for the season, which I think we need more than
ever,” Spinks said. “This has been really fun. This is an opportunity for art and artists. It’s a win-win-win. Art connecting business.” Both Spinks and Reclusado said the public response to the art project has been positive and uplifting. Reclusado said several local business owners have requested elves for their storefronts, and residents have inquired about featuring artwork in their homes. She said it’s been a great way to grow her business and network through gathering social media contacts. “In my spare time, I do art almost every day,” Reclusado said. “I’ve never done it on glass, but I tried before getting into it and it seemed pretty easy. The first day … I could tell it was going to be a bigger experience.”

REGION — The San Diego Association of Governments’ board unanimously elected its new chair Dec. 4, elevating current Vice Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear to the regional transportation planning agency’s top spot. Blakespear will begin her new role on Jan. 1 and will serve for two years. The election for the position of vice chair will be conducted at a future meeting. “I am humbled by the kind words said today by the board members and the speakers, and I will strive to the best of my ability to live up to expectations,” said Blakespear following the vote. “SANDAG is a vital forum for our local leaders to come together to make regional decisions about where people live, how they travel, and how we sustain the environment now and in the future. Being unanimously chosen by my elected peers to chair this organization is a true honor,” she said. Blakespear takes the helm at a busy time, as the Regional Plan will be determined at the end of 2021 and the new extension of the UC San Diego Blue Line Trolley will open about the same time. In 2022, the agency will begin implementing the Regional Plan and will work with regional, state and federal leaders and advocates on funding challenges. She succeeds Poway Mayor Steve Vaus, who has served as SANDAG Chair since December 2018. Vaus' last meeting as chair will be later this month. “It has truly been a pleasure working alongside Mayor Blakespear. We have worked through every issue together and I know she will do a terrific job,” Vaus said. “SANDAG is uniquely positioned to address some of the most complex issues facing our region, and it has been an honor to lead the agency for the last two years and to hand the reins over to Mayor Blakespear.” Blakespear has served as vice chair since 2018, working with Vaus on a

Several members of the SANDAG Board echoed Vaus’ support for Blakespear. “I appreciate all the work you have done as vice chair,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer. “Never been afraid to tackle the tough issues when it came to housing and supporting new initiatives. Her bipartisan approach is always appreciated, and I think that is how our region succeeds. I think we will be in good hands in the coming year under Catherine’s leadership.” Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara, the chair of the board's nominating committee, put forward Blakespear’s nomination for the chair. “Every once in a while, you find somebody who is so qualified there really is no other choice. I am pleased to report that the nominating committee feels that way about Mayor Blakespear,” McNamara said. “We are all trying to come to a common purpose — you need a unique person, someone who is committed to the common good and who understands that everyone should have a voice. We have that person in Catherine.” Blakespear has been a member of the SANDAG Board since January 2017 after being elected Encinitas Mayor in November 2016. She was re-elected to a third term as Mayor last month. could find. As these things always go, while vacuuming, I spotted a disgustingly sticky coffee table, dirt and dog hair in the sliding glass doors, a fireplace overflowing with ashes and a heap of wet towels from yesterday’s dog baths. This led to additional wiping down, shoveling, scraping, sweeping and scrubbing, plus three loads of laundry. And not just any laundry, but the sloppy towel laundry that always goes off center when the spin cycle hits. I spent hours redistributing soggy towels seeking centrifugal perfection. Were I truly resourceful, I would have spent all that energy on figuring out a way to make dog hair into fireplace logs.

In the early hours of Nov. 27, prosecutors said, an argument broke out after Dixon used his bare hands to help himself to holiday meal leftovers, and Jackson “forcefully escorted him to the home’s front door,” the Chicago Tribune reported. Assistant State’s Attorney Susie Bucaro said the altercation moved out to the front porch, where a witness found Jackson stabbed nine times. He was pronounced dead at a hospital, and Dixon was arrested eight hours later, Bucaro said, with a blood-covered knife in his possession. [Chicago Tribune, 11/29/2020] Names in the News

Chaplain-service dog teams offer firefighters emotional support By City News Service

Using canines has proven successful in so many other areas, and we know these dogs will fit right in with our fire family.” The SDFRD Crisis Response Canine program will be administered by chaplains Debi Arnold, Dan Guarrero and Betsy Salzman, making use of the skills of their dogs, Ty, Bodie and Genoa.

The total cost for Bodie and his training was about $17,000. Guarrero is responsible for the dog’s ongoing costs, such as food and veterinary bills, with support from the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation. Genoa is a 2-year-old Labrador retriever who lives with and is handled by Salzman. They have visited a variety of SDFRD facilities and supported personnel at emergency incidents.

Skeptical officials made him jump the same height again twice to help prove his story. Amazing-ly, he successfully avoided land mines and sensors around the border. [NPR, 11/25/2020] Tis the Season
— An animal rescue worker in Adelaide, Australia, thought she was being pranked when Amanda McCormick called on Dec. 2 to report she had dis-covered a koala in her Christmas tree. The little marsupial didn’t come with the tree; it wandered in the house and found a cozy new home among the or-
na-ments, 9News reported. The female koala was safely removed to its more natural habitat. “Koalas are very curious creatures, and if the opportunity presents itself, they will investigate,” the rescue team said. [9News, 12/2/2020] — Socially distanced visitors to Tokyo’s Sunshine Aquarium were delighted to see Santa Claus, complete with a mask and flippers and holding a Christmas wreath, gliding among banana fish and a stingray in a huge tank on Dec. 4, according to Reuters. The swimming Santa, who also used a bazooka-like feeder to shoot treats to the fish, is a 20-year tradition at the aquarium. “I know it’s difficult to hold events like these because of the coronavirus situation,” said visitor Ayami Koba-yashi, 35, “but I’m grateful they still held the event.” [Reuters, 12/4/2020]

Big wave season a reminder of a missed opportunity waterspot chris ahrens
t’s been over half a century since my brother Dave and I moved to Maui with the intent of riding Honolua Bay. That summer we stayed at a place in Lahaina called “Animal Farm,” where in return for 10 bucks a week we were given a floor to sleep on, along with kitchen and bathroom privileges. The best part of the deal was that out front of Animal Farm was a decent reef wave called Shark Pit. It was a coral-rich break and after slamming into the bottom headfirst once, I received a scar on my face and lacerations on my feet that led to a severe staph infection. Lahaina was nice, but it was south facing, and without any surf reports, there was no way of knowing when the swells had turned northerly and caused the bay to break. By early fall I moved to Maui’s North Shore where north swells poured in like waterfalls

tact tracing is conducted by EUSD staff to identify all individuals who came in close contact with the positive individual. Those individuals are directed to begin a 14-day quarantine. So far this month, exposure to individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 on EUSD campuses has resulted in the quarantine of 193 students and 37 employees. Since Sept. 28, a total of 655 students and 151 employees have been quarantined due to potential exposure to the virus. “Ensuring sufficient, high-quality staffing is a daily struggle in this situation,” Rankins-Ibarra said. “This includes teachers, substitute teachers, health technicians, custodians, aides, and other staff members, all of whom fill vital roles.

and gave every indication that Honolua was coming to life. We surfed a few headhigh days at Honolua, and while the waves were good, it was nothing like I had expected.

5, I drove to the beach to see that the Hookipa Park pavilion was gone. The result of the damage was clear; the biggest surf I had seen in my life was breaking far out at sea and exploding like a nuclear bomb test. I can still recall a wave cresting while counting off six seconds before it hit the trough. To this day I have never seen a larger slab of saltwa-
ter in motion. Paddling out for anyone less skilled than, say, Kai Lenny, who was still years from being born, would have been suicide. I raced to Maui Community College, broke in on a class, whispered about what I had just witnessed in my friend Chris’ ear and we were off. By the time we arrived, the bay was at capacity with waves standing five to six
people high and a crowd of some of the best surfers in the world out to ride them. On hand were the legends of the day: Jock Sutherland, Billy Hamilton and Jackie Baxter, who had flown in from the North Shore. Paul McKinney and Les Potts were the local standouts. I sat on the cliff with Chris and Skip Frye, who was under-gunned with the small California eggs he had built for the trip. My psychology teacher showed up and asked me if I had been out. I lied and said I had, even though I was too frightened to leave the safety of shore. Moments later a friend of mine asked me why I hadn’t paddled out and I made some lame excuse while my teacher silently psychoanalyzed me. I returned to the Mainland a month later and was greeted by perfect waves at Sunset Cliffs and Swami’s. While that was more my speed, I thought for years that I should have paddled out when I was young and fit and had the opportunity. As I write this on Dec. 5, 2020, the surf on Maui has again reached epic proportions. We are getting the tail end of nature’s rage. And hey, that’s okay by me.
Board vote seeks to curb youth tobacco use By City News Service
REGION — After several revisions and two months of debate, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors Dec. 8 approved a tobacco retail license ordinance intended to reduce usage by minors and hold retailers more accountable. The vote was 4-1 in favor of the ordinance, with outgoing Supervisor Kristin Gaspar opposed. The measure sets a minimum pack size and a minimum price for sales; allows the county to enforce minimum age laws and a previously adopted ban on flavored tobacco products; and prohibits the sale of tobacco products at pharmacies. The ordinance — which will take effect on July 1 and applies only
to unincorporated areas within the county — does not affect hookah tobacco use. In October 2019, the supervisors directed Chief Administrative Officer Helen Robbins-Meyer to develop several recommendations in response to health impacts of smoking and tobacco use. Unlike previous meetings, there was little discussion among the supervisors before the final vote. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher noted the board had already “debated, discussed, amended and changed” the proposal. During the comment period, public health advocates praised the board’s actions, while retail store representatives asked the board to postpone any action until the COVID-19 crisis was over. Chelsea Walczak Vircks, of the San Diego chapter of the American Heart Association, said
"Because Kindness Matters"
Kindness Meters found at these North County locations:
Tip Top Meats • Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation • Boy’s & Girls Club of C’bad (Bressi Ranch) Moonlight Amphitheater The Lund Team Office and Downtown Carlsbad (at the sign) 100% of the proceeds benefit 7charitable organizations in the community including the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation, Carlsbad Educational Foundation, Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, and The Moonlight Cultural Foundation, Kids for Peace and Boys and Girls Club of Carlsbad
the county’s June 2020 tobacco youth use survey found instances of retailers selling to minors. “This underscores the need for bold action,'' she said. “Please put the health of our kids first.” James Allison, spokesman for the California Fuels and Convenience Alliance, said further restrictions could be “the final nail in the coffin” for small businesses, justifying a delay in any new rules. “These businesses today depend on your leadership,” he added. The board first voted 3-2 on the proposed ordinance in late October; with Jim Desmond and Gaspar opposed. Desmond’s earlier opposition involved concern that the proposed ordinance’s age limits would deny people under 21 job opportunities. Gaspar previously said she didn’t support the measure as written because it pitted urban- and suburban-based retailers against rural ones, and that many young people don’t rely on retail stores for tobacco. Last month, supervisors voted 4-1 — with Gaspar also dissenting — in favor of three amendments — making 18 the minimum age for a store clerk to handle a tobacco sale, allowing the transfer of a tobacco retail license from the owner to immediate family members and establishing licensing fees. Supervisor Dianne Jacob said earlier that the goal is to help keep tobacco products out of the hands of young people.

Making a bike trail discovery close to home hit the road e’louise ondash
ometimes it takes out-of-town visitors to show you what’s in your backyard. In this case, I’m talking about the San Luis Rey Bike Trail in Oceanside — a clean, paved pathway with a Class I designation, which I take to mean “really easy” because I was able to traverse it with minimum skill. The trail needed to be easy because it’s been – um – a lot of years (let’s just say it was sometime in the last millennium) since I climbed on a bike and rode any appreciable distance. I’ve been thinking about doing such for a while, but it took my sister, Jenny, and her husband, Dan, from Tempe, Arizona, to get me and my husband out there. Together and separately, Dan and Jenny have put thousands of miles on both their tandem and single bikes, traversing the country east to west and north to south. They spent their most recent trip cycling throughout the Southeast dodging hurricanes, 18-wheelers, mosquitoes, armadillos and various roadkill. There were many

favorable moments, too, but my sister regretted the absence of one experience. “I really wanted to see an alligator but didn’t,” she told me. Alligators are one hazard you WON’T have to worry about on the San Luis Rey Bike Trail, which has
several entry points and parking along its 10.7 miles (one way). The trail extends from the west end of Neptune Way, a few blocks north of the Oceanside Pier, to the east end of North Santa Fe Avenue where we parked (Advice: Get there early. Spaces are limited,
and it’s a popular spot). The trail is paved and, to my surprise, has a traffic stripe for the entire distance. We saw every level of cyclist enjoying the ride, from a kid on training wheels to serious cyclists pumping at high speeds – which is why you’ve got to
stay alert and on your side of the road. Just because it’s an easy trail doesn’t mean you can let your attention wander — which might be a challenge as there are plenty of distractions. I’m not adept at spotting wildlife as I ride, but it’s there. According to the
Canyoneers, a passionate hiking group out of the San Diego Natural History Museum, common birds along the way include snowy egrets, blue herons, grebes, and various ducks. If you can’t ride-and-spot, there are several places along the way to rest and take in the expansive landscape. User reviews say the ideal places to take a breather are at Mance Buchanan Park and Alex Road Skate Park. (Maps are available on the City of Oceanside website.) The trail also is listed as a route for walkers, but on high-traffic days (holidays and weekends), it won’t be a peaceful hike. Cyclists way outnumber walkers, who must hug the edge of the payment and remain hyper-alert. We clocked about 10 miles, then returned to the parking lot at the North Santa Fe end. Though we’ve lived in San Diego County for several decades, I’m embarrassed to say that this was our first ride on the San Luis Rey Bike Trail. But that’s the beauty of our county; there is always something new to see and experience — perhaps even enough to get us through this pandemic.

This column isn’t asking eve-ryone to band together to save XYZ business. You are going through this pandemic too. Nor is this a column railing at officials for pandemic policy impacting an industry that can be tough to thrive in even in the best of times.

more effectively? Could aid packages have been better distributed to those in need? Yes. On all counts at all levels. Is staying home, wearing a mask and trying to slow the spread of this virus necessary? Yes. Abso-lutely, but if the past eight months have taught me anything, it is that we need to cut each other a little slack. Early in this pandemic,
I talked to brewery owners about how they felt about being open, even partially. They were happy, grateful even, to be working, but most commented that they would rather be home, limiting the risk to their employees, customers and families. They didn’t — they couldn’t — shut down entirely because extended closures would be more than their businesses could survive. Things have only gotten more complicated since the spring. The truth is, no matter what happens now, more
hospitality businesses will close. It will hurt. It will devastate employees, managers and owners who have put their heart and soul into businesses smashed head-on by a freakin’ COVID-19 semi-truck. It will hurt the customers who loved eating and drinking and being merry there. We’ve long entered the unknown, and it is terrifying, and yet… And yet, my social media feed is also filled with friends building holiday trees out of lo-cally made six-packs of beer and wrap-
ping them in twinkling lights; messages about starting coffee swaps or pay-itforward programs to buy pints for frontline health care workers, and strangers responding to those in need of help. The community around the beverage industry is rallying again. I also see photos from the businesses themselves thanking the communities they in-habit. I see city councils digging deep to add grant monies to the local small business stimulus packages to support as many small businesses as
possible. There are those standing by to be leaned on. San Diego always feels like a “shop local” community, but this year it has gone into overdrive. If you’re giving gifts, I encourage you to find a brewery, bar, cafe, or restaurant that makes your community feel like home and share what they do with those you love. Swap out the candy canes in the stocking for a bomber of beer. Individually wrap every can from a local mixed case and play “mystery” beer with your spouse. Fill those gift boxes with Hoppy Beer gear or new hoodies from your favorite brewery. Avoid a day in the kitchen and order your holiday meal from the neighborhood spot. Ship a pound of coffee or a bottle of Pacific Coast Spirits gin to that favorite aunt or uncle you may not get to see in person this year, and then drink it together over Zoom. It will be a gift for them (I’m always excited when I can drink presents), a gift for the business and it will feel like a gift for you. There are grace and joy in giving. I hope pay-ing forward a few pints, a few cups of coffee, a few meals will put smiles on a few more faces. I hope our support, combined with so many others’ support, will help keep a few more doors open. Be sure to check out the upcoming episode of the Cheers!

The only symbol that leaves me with hope is that a significant number showed wine images. Wine sales on the internet are up 80% year over year.

Their latest release is a Stella Rosa Golden Honey Peach, a refreshing white with flavors of honey and peach that’s served chilled with fresh fruit, cheese, spicy cuisine and desserts. What makes this fascinating is the back label, which has the complete nutritional facts for this wine. The largest, can’t-miss number is the calorie amount per serving. A serving of wine is documented as 5 ounces per container and this content is stated as 100 calories. A bottle of this size is 25 ounces, so expect 500 calories per bottle, if you’re counting. Total sugar is 13 grams, or 12% of the bottle’s contents. This is a “sweet” wine and would reflect that higher sugar presence.

Where Service is No Accident!

Carlsbad as the original Chin’s started in Carlsbad on Madison Street back in the ’80s. Ting Kun Tsai was one of the original owners and in time they became one of the largest family-owned restaurant chains in San Diego. In 2010, the chain was divided into two groups and today they have five locations in Encinitas, Oceanside, Vista, Rancho Bernardo, and their newest location in Carlsbad on Roosevelt Street next to the post office. The new location has the original management team and owner, which makes it even more special for everyone involved. They had been wanting to get back to Carlsbad for quite some time and when they learned that the Overseas Restaurant owners wanted to retire after 30 years in business they jumped at the opportunity. Having established themselves in so many of our local communities over the years, Chin’s has developed a loyal following in

each of them and have catered weddings, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries … just about any occasion. And yes, keep them in mind for your next event. So that’s a bit on Chin’s backstory and how the new location came about. Let’s get into their menu, which is based on Szechwan and Hunan style cooking. The variety of flavors and textures offered has something for everyone and given their coastal location with its health-conscious customers, they have increased their offerings of vegetarian and gluten-free entrees. Their most popular dishes include Spicy Honey Chicken, Honey Walnut Shrimp, Ku Ting Chicken, Black Pepper Beef, and Tangerine Crispy Shrimp. My carryout order had me set for lunch, dinner, a latenight snack and breakfast the next day. I started with Pot Stickers, which were quite good and that I spread over three of those meals, as I did with most of these dishes and is one of the bonuses of ordering from Chin’s — the portions are sizable. Both the Honey Walnut Shrimp and Pao Hu, or “Hot burned Pork,” were delicious along with the
Spicy Honey Chicken. One of my favorite Chinese delights is Egg Foo Young. It’s just such a classic dish and the large patty is made fresh daily and served with snow peas, mushrooms, broccoli, baby corn, mushrooms, carrots and bok choy in a brown sauce and oh boy is it fabulous … especially as a leftover. I had to sample their Pork Fried Rice and loved that as well. And as I’ve mentioned, every one of these dishes worked just as well as leftovers. My thing with fried rice is to crisp it up a bit in a skillet then add a couple eggs to it either mixed in or fried whole and set on top of the rice. There are so many ways to get creative with these leftovers. Given that restaurants like Chin’s have always been a carryout staple, that has enabled them to survive the pandemic and the associated restrictions. Stanford summed it up this way: “We have been able to sustain with proper planning from our team to weather times like these but most importantly, it’s the support from the communities that keep us going. “Since the beginning
of the year, the communities have been amazing in their support of not just our business but all the others that are struggling as well. “We are keenly aware that it’s not just about ‘us.’ It’s about everyone who is having hardships. It’s about San Diegans. It’s important that we give back to San Diego to say thank you for their continued support. Just this year we have donated over $5k to the food bank and that’s just from the business, not including our personal donations. “We donated thousands to the Community Resource Center toward a new food truck. Through the years, we have supported the Children’s Hospital, Blood Bank, Animal Shelters, and more. “Bottom line, we are grateful to be here and we thank everyone for their continued support.” That, my friends, is a business worth supporting. And if carryout is not convenient, Chin’s offers delivery via GrubHub, Doordash, Postmates, and UberEats.

DEC. 11, 2020
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) At this time you might want to resist that otherwise admirable Aries penchant for getting to the heart of a matter quickly. Keep in mind that a delicate situation calls for patience. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your aspects favor more diplomacy and fewer direct confrontations when dealing with a relationship problem. Avoiding hurt feelings can help in your search for the truth. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Positive aspects are strong this week. Although you might still have to deal with some problems caused by a recent period of turmoil, you are making progress, and that’s what counts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family matter could benefit from your counsel. But don’t come into it unless invited, and don’t stay if you feel uneasy. Just remember to reassure one and all that you’ll be there for them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As the truth about an ongoing situation emerges, you could find that you were right to defer judgment before you had all the facts. Now would be a good time to move on to other matters. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your plans to take control of a personal situation because you feel you are best qualified could create resentment. Best to hear what everyone else involved in the matter has to say about it.
TRIVIA TEST ANSWERS
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Uncovering some surprising background facts about that ongoing personal matter could make you reconsider the extent of your involvement. A neutral family member offers advice. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Religious or spiritual themes start to dominate your aspect this week. This can serve as a counterweight to the mounting effects of the season’s growing commercialization. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Taking on that recent challenge impressed a lot of important decision-makers. Meanwhile, proceed with your holiday plans, and don’t forget to include you-know-who in them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Disagreeing with an opinion you can’t accept could be dicey, and your motives might be questioned. Best to wait to mount a challenge until you have support for your position. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Getting involved in helping others in this increasingly hectic period not only makes the generous Aquarian feel good, but you could also gain a more substantive benefit from your actions. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The Piscean way of thinking clearly and objectively helps you resolve a complex situation without creating any ill will. Don’t be surprised if your counsel is requested on another matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of persuading people to look at the positive possibilities that make up any choices they might face. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
